In the 1830’s a large stone mill would be constructed across the river on the east bank; the proprietors here stuck to grinding grain : and the two mills stood and stand yet as eloquent testimony to a once keen harmony between man’s needs and Nature’s possibilities.

State song
State song

  • I know of a state that's a perfect playland with white sandy beaches by the sea;With fun-filled mountains, lakes and parks, and folks with hospitality;With historic towns where battles were fought, and presidents have made their home;It's called New Jersey, and I toast and tout it wherever I may roam. 'Cause . . .

  • First Chorus I'M FROM NEW JERSEY and I'm proud about it, I love the Garden State.I'M FROM NEW JERSEY and I want to shout it, I think it's simply great.All of the other states throughout the nation may mean a lot to some;But I wouldn't want another, Jersey is like no other, I'm glad that's where I'm from.

  • Second Chorus If you want glamour, try Atlantic City or Wildwood by the sea;Then there is Trenton, Princeton, and Fort Monmouth, they all made history.Each little town has got that certain something, from High Point to Cape May;And some place like Mantoloking, Phillipsburg, or Hoboken will steal your heart away.
